MISSOURI PUBLIC UTILITY COMMISSION - REQUEST FOR RELIEF FOR 314 NUMBERING PLAN AREA. Responded to the Missouri Public Service Commission's request that the FCC direct the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA) to release a new area code to provide relief for the 314 Numbering Plan Area (NPA); accepted the North American Numbering Council's recommendation that NANPA release the requested NPA code as soon as practical and approved the release of the requested code.
